Pic.No. 1 A picture of a sheep burping - Don't do it sheep! you are slowly killing us all!
So what tomfoolery have our ovine friends been up to today? Well quite simply, the little critters have been burping.
Oh yes, you read right. Scientists in Australia and New Zealand (where they are positively obsessed by sheep, as my friend Phil Moore will verify) have discovered that 66% of agricultural emissions of methane come from sheep burping.
Given the fact that methane is far worse for global warming than carbon dioxide, it means that sheep are subversively killing us all.
Pic.No.2. Don't be fooled by their blank expressions
Luckily, the scientists have cottoned onto the fact that sheep aren't as innocent as they look, and are going to genetically modify them all so that they burp less. Ha ha sheep! get out of that one without moving........
Gotta go, I am starting to feel hungry with all this talk about sheep.
